Kitchen Layouts.

The kitchen is an important part of every home. A kitchen is created according to the space, budget, and many other requirements of the owner. In the blog just before, we have discussed briefly about modular kitchen and this blog is a continuation of that. Here, we are going to explain different layouts of the kitchen and going to give you a clear idea about which layout suits your home. Some of the layouts are

• Straight-line kitchen
• Gallery kitchen
• U shaped kitchen
• L shaded kitchen
• Peninsular Kitchen
• Island Kitchen

Straight-line kitchen
Straight-line kitchens mainly suit narrow spaces. This type of layout mainly provides a working area against one wall. The advantage of using this layout is cost-effective and appears sleek. Talking about its drawback, it doesn’t provide proper working space and storing space.

Gallery kitchen
Comparing with a straight line kitchen, the galley kitchen has a work platform on either side, this keeps the layout to do the task with fewer movements providing a better work efficiency but feels crowded due to narrow cabinet spaces.

U shaped kitchen
This layout is comfortable for an outsized space. This design is placed in between three walls resulting in a U-shaped design. When comparing to a gallery kitchen, u shaped kitchen gives you plenty of labour and storing space. The place won’t feel as crowded as it has enough space in between but the movements for completing a task will be more and tiring.

L Shaped Kitchen
We can see this type of layout mainly in contemporary kitchens in India. As per the name itself, this layout falls along two perpendicular walls. This shape gives you a lot of design flexibility, better task completion and performs a perfect kitchen triangle.

Peninsular Kitchen
Efficient for open kitchen designs and outsized space. One of the features of this layout is that it has an independent counter that can be used for having small foods. This layout forms a perfect separation between the kitchen and living room.

Island Kitchen
This layout needs a huge amount of space because there is a counter in the center of the layout which suits families that spend a lot of time in the kitchen. The counter placed in the centre of the layout can be used for dining and also for chopping vegetables etc.

Even though every sector is growing faster in terms of designs, constructions, etc up to an extent basic layouts keep the same such as the kitchen layouts just explained above.

Modular Kitchen

Kitchen is one of the most important part of any home. We can say that kitchen is the heart of a home. In this blog, we are going to discuss about the modular kitchen.

Modular kitchen has got wide attention in a short period of time because of its attractive advantages. Some of them are the following, its Cleary hygienic, better space management properties, cost-effective, easy repairing, and updating.

• Assess all your needs
• Budget
• Kitchen Layout and Design
• Storage requirements
• Planning of associated works

Assess All Your Needs
First, you need to look through your present kitchen, then start making a list of the things you used there, avoid the things you haven’t used even though it was available. Also, take time to include your newly requirements. For example, you may not be using a storage space below and it’s quite very few you access that place. You always prefer to keep things somewhere else like above space, etc. Then of course we can utilize that space for something else, make it more comfortable for you, or can avoid designing that area thus you can save your money and effort

Budget, One of the things playing the main role here. Everything depends on it up to a limit. Even starting from qualities of the material, designs, etc. But the good thing is in a modular kitchen up to a limit, many of the requirements of the clients are satisfied with in their budget. When you are thinking about the budget, you have to understand the items that affect the cost of kitchen

As per your requirements and space availability the kitchen layout can be designed. There are different types of the kitchen such as the straight, gallery, u shaped kitchen, etc. We will be writing a detailed blog based on different types of kitchen layouts and designs later.

Storage Requirements
This is about what proportion of storage there’s needed and it must be planned to depend upon the usage of the kitchen and who is utilizing the kitchen. For example, if you reside during a joint family with elderly people and kids, then you need to plan your storage at lower levels apart from the top level. At the same time, the fragile items must be planned within the upper unit. Also, consider once we completed the planning of the storage it must include all the items that we using within the kitchen. Every item must have a neighbourhood in your cabinet, otherwise, it’ll affect the aesthetics of the modular kitchen. With the storage planning, we’ve to select the type of drawer baskets and pull-outs used in each storage also so it’ll be simpler.

Planning of Associated Works
This includes the planning of the related works like plumbing, wiring, lighting, fire, and suitable ventilation works. If you’re planning to include a kitchen island containing a sink or other appliances in your design, you need to ensure that plumbing and electricity supplies are in place before flooring is laid.
